The Honors Program invites you to an afternoon study break! There will be a nacho bar and margarita mocktails in honor of Cinco de Mayo.
The English Department at WSU and the Humanities & Arts Department at WPI are excited to host Forrest Gander, a Pulitzer finalist in poetry (2012), and Christina Davis, an award-winning poet and the curator of the Woodberry Poetry Room, on Tuesday, April 29. Gander and Davis will offer a free Craft Talk about poetry writing, translation, travel writing, genre hybridization, and the writing life at WSU from 3-4:15 p.m. in the Eager Auditorium in the Sullivan Building. All are invited to this event and to the poets’ reading at 7 p.m. tomorrow night in Salisbury Labs at WPI (rm. 115 in Kinnicutt Hall).
As part of their visit, Gander and Davis will share the stage here at WSU with Commonwealth Honors student Sarah Leidhold, the first place prize winner of the annual Barbara Pilon Poetry Contest, who will also read from her work.
Be sure to RSVP for honors credit!

Welcome to the start of pre-registration!
This is just a reminder that, in many cases, it is possible to convert a regular seat in a course with embedded honors seats to an honors seat. If you are registering for a course with embedded honors seats and all honors seats are taken, just register for a regular seat and e-mail me or Dr. Weierman to let us know that you’d like to take the course for honors. We will then ask the professor’s permission to add the honors seat.
Good luck with registration—feel free to contact us with any other questions or problems as well.
